AVID has developed a system to convert low grade waste heat generated by the vessel propulsion and generator engines into valuable electricity to reduce the overall fuel burn of the vessel.

The AVID system is being developed in conjunction with the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) and is entering trial vessel installations in 2017 to 2018.

The AVID eWHR will be a highly compact and modular system that can be installed in modules of 200kW electrical output to almost any vessel. Multiple modules can be installed if sufficient waste heat is available to drive the system. The system has been designed to be modular and scalable.

This builds on AVID’s expertise in high performance electrical machines and power electronics compact and robust heat exchanger systems and thermal management.
